F1 2013 Alternative Championships – Round 8/19: England

SILVERSTONE 2013 evoked bad memories of Indy-gate in 2005, the last time that tyre issues caused so many problems in a Grand Prix.

Lewis Hamilton (while leading), Felipe Massa, Jean-Éric Vergne, Esteban Gutiérrez and Sergio Pérez all suffered blowouts, while Fernando Alonso and eventual race winner Nico Rosberg just about managed to avoid the same fate.

Rosberg inherited his second win in three races after reigning champion and current points leader Sebastian Vettel suffered a gearbox failure with ten laps to go.
